affect the party in future elections. her remarks come at the new hampshire institute of politics at saint anselm college in manchester. [applause] >> meghann said she was thinking of brushing up on her spanish to do the introduction. she didn't want to offend me and i said i don't get easily offended. i know george w. bush. the butchering of spanish doesn't offend me very much. thank you for being here. well, neil was just telling me this is the third event today. it seems you guys are busy. i want to thank you. i want to thank you for inviting me to new hampshire. new hampshire has a very special place in my heart. first of all, i am a mccainiac. winning the primary here was one of the highlights of the campaign. second of all, i happen to love your national committee man, who has the coolest socks of any republican committee man. third of all, because i think you have the baddest state slogan in the entire nation. i thought we would have a conversation today about where the republican party is. i'm not here to give you a history lesson and give you statistics. this is the birth
the cat's got their tongue. or is it the calendar. with elections coming next year and those on the right with any iq have noticed the one time the democrats saw their numbers go skyward was when the republicans played stupid party and turned themselves into the anyone couple pops of the potomac and shut done the government. tonight we look at this strange new world, scared to death at the second there's talk of closing it the democrats will open up another big lead in public confidence. who would have believed it would only take a month to teach the tea party that no government is bad politics. david corn for mother jones and howard fineman for "the huffington post" both msnbc political analysts. i know there are still questions about febds. but this week when it looks like they might have a budget deal and january when the continuing resolution comes up for continuing, it looks like they've decided not to go all-out crazy again. is this pure politics or grownup behavior or a mix? >> well, don't count your non-shutdowns before they happen. because there are 20 or so house g g g gop'ers.
care act. and according to their own post-election autopsy, the gop just needed to reboot altogether. let's take a look at how each is doing. relatively speaking it was a good week for the obama administration. positive economic numbers and, as expected, there were ongoing improvements in the health care website. >> i understand why people would have been resistant to going on a website that wasn't working right. and, fortunately, because of some very hard work, we've now got it to the point where for the vast majority of people it's working well. >> the center for medicare and medicaid services announced on friday this past week more than 3.7 million people visited healthcare.gov. the error rate is down from one in four to one in ten. so as expected, progress is being made and more people are able to join and get access to health care. okay. so reince priebus and the gop had a little bit more time for their reboot. you'll recall they initially announced findings of the growth and opportunity project back in march. well, here's what they said they needed to change. quote, the republi

of those problems, but when you elected phil bryant to be your governor, he stopped you from fixing those problems. you could have done it. you were doing it, and he stopped you. mississippi, you could have been kentucky, but you are staying mississippi. it is now december. happy december. that means the sign-up exchanges for health insurance have been under way for two months now, two months and one day. month two, turns out, went much, much better than month one did, went like four times better. that's the same pattern that we saw in massachusetts six years ago when we essentially piloted this same policy for the nation under romney care in massachusetts. after a terrible first few weeks on the federal healthcare.gov website, the obama administration now says the site is working for most people most of the time, which is what they were hoping for by december 1. if the health care website is, in fact, working that much more smoothly, that should smooth the way for more people to get enrolled across the country. in the first nine weeks, in general, states running their own exchanges, kent
second term by returning to the themes on which he staked his re-election. >> i believe this the defining challenge of our time, making sure our economy works for every working american. that's why i ran for president. if republicans have concrete plans that will reduce inequality, build middle class, provide more ladders of opportunity to the poor, lets hear them. >> "washington post" ezra klein called the president's 48 minute speech perhaps the single best economic speech of his presidency. that's in part because it exists to lay out obama's view of the economy. his other views have been about passing legislation, defining campaign themes or positioning himself against republicans. president obama is done running for office. though the president is indeed finished campaigning for office, his remarks did reflect a political calculus. to underscore differences between two parties and show voters once again the choice that lies ahead of them next year. as e.j. dion writes, republicans are betting that obama care and travails will be the deciding issue in the next year's election. obama th
town hall meetings for the midterm elections in 2010. and so you allow people to organize and get these groups out there, that were there to just obstruct. what you need to do is do small group meetings. start with your base, start with women's organizations and use your best weapon. michelle obama. >> i love that. stick with me, because we'll have robert gibbs when we come back, and i want to ask about who would be the effective surrogates here. i love the idea of first lady obama out there sort of selling this law, but i wonder if there are some real challenges in making that happen. stick with us, we are bringing robert gibbs into the discussion next. when it's donut friday at the office, i use my citi thankyou card to get 2x the points at the coffee shop. which will help me get to a beach in miami and they'll be stuck at the cube farm. the citi thankyou preferred card. now earn 2x the points dining out, with no annual fee. go to citi.com/thankyoucards she pretty much lives in her favorite princess dress. and she's not exactly tidy. even if she gets a stain she'll wear it for a
for the gop, forget impeachment. go out and win an election. joining me now are ryan grim and goldie taylor. thank you goet for coming on the show tonight. >> thank you. >> thanks for having me. >> ryan, what do republicans hope to gain by talking about impeachment when they know it's not going to happen? >> well, people like congressman farenthold are people that think the president wasn't born here. that he's not legitimate and they want him out one way or another. they couldn't beat him in '08, couldn't beat him in 2012. he'll leave in 2016, but they're too impatient for that. this is something they'll be on i think until the day he finally leaves office. >> you know, goldie, when the gop rolls out the runs they wanted to impeach the president, i mean, for any variety of reasons. because i wasn't born here. because of immigration reform. fast and furious, not extending bush tax cuts, dream act, war in libya, gun control, benghazi. and quote, all the czars he's appointed. it's amazing. >> it's amazing that the kitchen sink isn't in there. >> i didn't get to it. >> maybe it is. maybe we ha
.50 an hour by 2016. >>> his first full day as a cant for re-election, mayor gray battled with reporters. he wanted to talk about economic success. tom sherwood reports gray was pressed on his record and 2010 campaign that remains under criminal investigation. tom? >> gray was there to talk about his success as mayor. the event got off on a bad foot before it started. arriving for a news conference on economic development, the security staff blocked reporters from his elevator. >> that's it. that's it. >> why can't reride up, mr. mayor? >> it was nonfunctional. >> reporter: the mayor spoke more than an hour. >> a vital, breathing, growing city, making a city safer. >> reporter: he bris led when asked if his successes were from the former mayor. >> you are wrong, okay? you are plain wrong. >> reporter: they came over to challenge the reporter, aaron wiener. >> that's what they did. a lot of ground breaking with little in the pipeline. there's no funding for it. >> reporter: when gray said he was running on his record, the federal criminal probe into his 2010 campaign. >> have you cooperated?
are not on capitol hill, you moonlight to get democrats elect and get the 17 seats needed to reclaim the majority. a person who has gone out of his way to help you is the president of the united states. they say that the president has not turned down a single fund raiser. he is doing whatever he is asking to do. the same with the vice president. one issue that came cross with president obama is since the health care roll out is bungled, there is this issue of trust. a new cnn poll when asked if you trust the president, 46% agreed and 53% disagreed. how much of a drag will president obama be on your prospects to reclaim the house and do you want him front and center on stage with candidates in swing districts? >> i don't think he is going to be a drag at all and honestly, we want the focus to focus on the affordable care act and when it works well and works better, our prospects are enhanced and the president's in that is a very strong one. it helps us. you have got two philosophies here. the democratic philosophy that recognizes that the roll out was a disaster. we have to be focussed on getting
of obamacare. income inequality was enough to get the yor of new york elected. >> income inequality is a reality. you can't argue about it. it is deningng. the realality is, first of all that the financial sector of the country has gotten bigger and more important anand has bier slice of thehe pie. basilly we are responsible for alall of the pain and all of the dislocation american suffered in the financial crisis and d has done this well since that time. the median incncome, household income, has leveled off or even fallen. the president t is speing the truth. one could say because of health care, whwhatever. this is the central question of our time. if you take american mobility, which s fallen, that somebody born to deprivation, the opportunity and education to rise, we are less abable to do that then were. we have to reclaim that appeared -- that. >> i think we have to back to something else, obama took office and literally wasted two years doing almost nothing while median income went down. seems to me he took office at a time when we were in a recession. and that efforts to
of people elected. >> i think john boehner who i know and like would retract those comments. i hope he would. i'll put in a different perspective. they are right where they were a few months back. democrats wanting more revenue, republicans wanting some cuts in entitlements. now, i'm not that bright and neither is my 3-year-old dog. it suggests to me the only way we're going to get a deal is if some people are willing to give. there is common ground. the president is willing to recalculate benefits under social security, formula for those calculations early in the year. paul ryan agrees with that. the president also said he's willing to look at medicare premiums for those that earn more. ryan says he agrees to that. i don't understand why adults can't come into the room -- this is not placing -- i think republicans are at blame but at some level this impasses, we have a subsenate, we all have to give a little bit here. if not the sequestration cuts will take effect in january. as much as some people don't like them, the sky didn't fall in when they happened at the beginning of this year. i d
that republicans since the end of the last election have been licking their wounds and trying to figure out the best way to do two things. one is close the gender gap among voters and also, try to recruit more female candidates here in congress to be members of congress. this is something that came up this morning when i interviewed the house majority leader, boehner's number two, eric cantor. here's his take. >> do you not know how to talk to women, sir? >> we have any number of republican women in our conference who are real leaders on all kinds of -- >> but is there a problem with men in the republican party, your rank and file, who don't know how to communicate to reach female voters? >> you know, it is our policies that are going to appeal to both female and male voters. >> but they haven't. >> when we're talking about health care right now, our health care starts with people and patients. >> mr. boehner a little more candid than his number two there. dana, a lot of this is obviously about trying to prevent the kind of gaffes we heard, for example, from former congressman, senate candi
clinton's rise to power. when you look at bill clinton coming to power after three disastrous elections where the democratic party was viewed as unelectable by a lot of the country, it was fueled by ideas, by platform, by a vision of where to lead to reinvent the party. and you see the great deficit in those remarks by the speaker that the congressional wing of the republican party has in the eyes of the american people, absolutely bereft of ideas. i'm not a fan of the affordable care act, but my party has no solutions to deal with what's a real issue. no working person in this country, for example, should lose their house, go bankrupt, because their kid breaks their leg or their spouse gets leukemia, so republicans, who were once the party of ideas, during the regan era, through the 1990s along with president clinton, we have collapsed as far as our ability to be policy entrepreneurs. that's the great challenge if we're to be successful in 2016, to have candidates to break away, put forward ideas about economic growth, health care, and ideas that americans are focused on. >> jonathan,
who need religious voters in these primaries or, you know, in national elections as well. >> well, we know it's important, but we also know the other side. that is the concern that someone would legislate based on their religion, which happens to not be the religion of the constituent in some cases. and that is the larger, i think what you were saying, the conversation is not the floating book shelf cross thing, it's a larger conversation. >> it's the content of how you legislate. >> absolutely. all right, domenico, thank you very much. greatly appreciate it. and a reminder, chris matthews has a one-on-one interview with president obama today. it's part of the "hardball" college tour live from american university. the full interview airs tonight at 7:00 eastern on "hardball." >>> still ahead, well, he's back. he never left, but anyway, toronto mayor rob ford responds to new reports that he may have tried to buy the infamous video that allegedly shows him smoking crack. the offer, according to court documents, may have been $5,000 and a car. that according to drug dealers who allegedly
, the anniversary of those first democratic elections is next year, it was 20 years ago. so a lot of people, a lot of these people here didn't know apartheid, didn't know about the feel, the indignities of it, but they still know that nelson mandela made sacrifices for them. and the key is -- and he was very, very passionate about it -- he wanted his legacy to live on way after he had gone. and dethat he did that, "you ca like me in a small way. it's not hard to be nelson mandela. just pay attention to the people close to you and keep on trying hard and never give up." that in a way is his legacy. >> and they are living his legacy out. robin, thank you. appreciate it. >> reporter: okay. >>> one of the icons of new york honored nelson mandela last night. look at this. the top of the empire state building -- >> right. >> -- lit up green, yellow, blue, red, the color of the south african flag, and nearby at the south african consulate -- >> there it is. >> -- there it is, mourners laid the flowers and tributes to man tell la. >> beautiful sight. >>> all right. still to come -- huge day in college foo
far and wide to find someone who knows politics and elected as a republican governor and served four presidents including one democrat named obama. and the only name we could come up with is huntsman. yes, that's my dad jon. welcome to "the cycle." we've banished luke to the remote camera so you can be surrounded by beautiful women, a man with five daughters -- >> i have to say, i've been at a lot of tables but never been so intimidated. and so honored, i have to tell you, it's a great treat to be with you. >> we love having your daughter as well. >> i came to see whether she's been naulgty or nice and tour'e isn't here to give me the straight scoop. >> he wishes he could be but dad, you've been in politics a very long time, before i was born. your first job was advance man for reagan. have you seen it this divided? >> no, i think historically you have to go back to the 1890s when we've been this divided. people feel that divided system, they sense it in all of the discussions that take place on capitol hill. and the fact of the matter is we are divided. and something needs to be don
campaign. four people pleaded guilty to running a shadow campaign that helped him get elected. gray, though, is not facing any charges. >> our record speaks for itself. look at the fiscal stability, education, the way people are getting back to work. >> some of gray's opponents are already criticizing him for running again. tommy wells says the mayor doesn't deserve a second chance because he ran a corrupt campaign. >> and new, vice president joe biden is taking a stance against china's air defense zone. earlier today he held a press conference. biden told the u.s. he is deeply concerned about china's attempt to change the status quo in the east china sea. china wants all aircraft entering airspace over water around its land to notify authorities before hand. the u.s., gentleman want and other allies refuse to recognize. this is expected to dominate conversation when biden travels to beijing tomorrow. >>> and right now secretary of state john kerry is meeting with nato diplomats. they want to persuade afghan leaders to keep international forces inning of beyond 2014. that would include u.s.
that the horror stories will basically lead them to next year's election. i don't think it is going to last for 50 weeks, but this is what they put all of their emphasis on, and we're just going to hear more and more of them. but as you say, they sort of get further and further from any reality. >> the crucial test on the political consequences are whether they do make that jump. when you talk about the planned cancellation stories, which when you scratch the surface of a lot of them were way less than they appeared. we're talking about people who qualified for subsidies, and were not reported for qualifying for subsidies, those really did have an impact. but i think the mainstream media that has been burned have gotten more skeptical. >> the cancellation stories, for a week there they were everywhere. and i think a vast majority of americans thought millions of people just lost their health insurance. they got a cancellation notice inviting them to join another plan that may cost them less. so that was a main stream media problem, and hopefully they got burned so they will sort of leave these oth
at an election year and we have to look at next year as an empty calendar. things will come up for votes be they even look at minimum wage, women's issues, they're going to be messaging bills. when the senate and democrat start to vote on that and it starts to sound good for them. that's what is going to happen. >> sorry, mr. secretary. we're out of town. that brings us to the end of this edition i of inside story. in washington, i'm ray suarez. afghanistan's future grows increasingly uncertain, as years of foreign aid and intervention come to an end. in the jostling for money and power, competing forces are fighting for the wealth buried deep in the hindu kush mountains. that wealth is precious rubies, which fetch a handsome sum, especially when smuggled across the border. i'm steve chow. on this edition of 101 east, we look at the lives of afghan ruby miners who are risking it all chasing crystal dreams.
elected by us to us as their constituents. let's get together and work on the issue and fix the problems. the website is such a small thing. the problem we have is the law. it is a bad law. it may be the law of the land, of thevery was the law land at one time and we got rid of it. laws go away. sometimes we need to fix it. there was a whole generation -- raised onht socialism being bad and being told that communists were out to get them. this is socialized health care. this is what it is. people are falling for it. calling it a single- payer system. it is all ms. -- a mess. you want to get people health insurance? get them jobs. empower the individual. they will get health insurance and live a better life and provide for their children and hope that their children can have a better life. harrisburg, pennsylvania. republican. caller: hi. think obama is a little bit nonchalant about health care. if we cannot appeal this lot right now, wait until he gets out of office and then appeal law. too many people are suffering. thank you. host: should someone be fired? rose, are you there? daniel,
gop isn't exactly wing hearts and minds. >> the election is like which party will commit suicide last. the republicans messed up with the government shutdown, now the obama website. the concern next we'll see. >> joining me political writer, "daily beast" columnist sally cohn and contributor editor wallace walls. from washington, no longer in auburn gear although i expect his team spirit is soaring former white house secretary and founding partner of the insight agency robert gibbs. robert, i'll start with you. i will use football metaphors for fans at home and fans on set. is the white house -- is healthcare.gov are we seeing end to end a la auburn last night? is this a major play we're seeing on december 1st or are we in the middle of the field right now? >> i think the obama administration should be glad it appears to be first and ten again. it's no longer third and 35. we're a long way from 109 yard field goal return. look, i think you summed it up quite well. the users experience on the front end is greatly enhanced for most people that are using it. i never get tired of watching
debt ceilings, we have campaigns and elections coming in 2014. what's to say, oops, we didn't get to the other parts of immigration, but now we have more fence and more enforcement on the board rder. >> you know, the activists have not let this go. there's this day of fasting. there are a host of, you know, sort of sit-ins and engagement with republicans who have been intransigent on the issue. this issue is not going away for them, but if, as vicky outlines, the only measures they pass are punitive ones, i think that actually stands them in worst stead with americans in general than if they were to do nothing. >> oh, i think that's abundantly clear. because the bill that democrats and immigration advocates are willing to accept at this point is one that a lot of people are having a hard time swallowing because of this, like, $30 billion to $40 billion they want to throw at militarizing the border and just turning the border. when they say border, you know, they mean dozens of miles outside of the border encompassing tens of millions of peoples' lives. if you happen to live in tha
. but getting back to president obama, it's almost a full year, jon, into his re-election and you've been talking about how difficult his presidency has been, specifically over the past year. if you compare it to recent presidents before him, their approval rating at this very same time, president clinton and reagan both doing far better than president obama at this time. george w. bush was slightly lower at 37%. but this is the same president who it seemed could do no wrong when he was re-elected. ari often reminds me that in politics things can move very slow and they can also move very fast. >> only ari knows that? oh. >> and former white house adviser spoke to this on this week last week wanting it to move quickly. let's take a listen. >> people trust this president. i think there's been numbers all over the place. i'm confident in a few months from now those trust numbers are going to come up. i think his approval number will come up. >> that's obviously what every democrat wants. jon, it seems like this is a year the administration is wanting to put behind them very quickly. >> yeah
republicans that are -- >> right. >> -- holding this up. >> who got 3 million less votes in the last election. >> and remember, as you pointed out, over a majority of republicans actually support an increase in the minimum wage. so there is overwhelming consensus among the american p ub on this issue. >> there's dual tracks here. there's a kind of inside strategy with the progressive caucus pushing for this and even kind of main street democrats. then you've got this fight for 15. these are the fast food worker strikes. there was the biggest yet yesterday. they've been spreading. how do you think those two are interacting with each other? >> i think there are a couple things going on. social movements and protests in disruption is always great at getting issues on the national political agenda that normal politics doesn't allow. so if anything, we're having a sustained discussion about income inequality -- >> it's on every cable news network, it's on cnbc. >> even fox. it's everywhere. so one, we're talking about it, and there's legislation. but two, we are seeing actual legislative victories
at the polling in 2008 about health care when the president was running for election the first time, it was clearly defined for voters or especially swing voters as an economic issue. this is not separate from pocketbook issues, this is right on point. that's why given where we are at with a still struggling economy for many people, health care does fit into these pocketbook issues. when republicans talk about you've got your free choice of doctors, for most people there isn't an actual free choice, because the cost of going to any doctor, any hospital you want is prohibitive. those are those out of network costs that make it very, very difficult for anyone to support this free choice that supposedly is part of this system. so people understand that very well. what they don't understand is what the president is proposing and how these costs will come down if they take part in these exchanges or the coverage they get will be better through their employer. >> has the democratic side been outmaneuvered on this, outmarketed on this so far, rick? >> well, they labor under the disadvantag

"the times" on that story for a year is why edward snowden took his rev liegss further this year to "the guardian" in britain. today, the editor of "the guardian" has only published about 1% of what edward snowden gave them. is that decision not to publish 99% an issue of bravery, intimidati intimidation? is that judgment? they are deciding, in effect, what we get to know about what our government does based on their judgment of what counts as news. and their judgment conceivably of what harm they could cause by releasing to the public what they as a news organization are privileged to know that the rest of us to do. it is a very, very uncomfortable thing. it is part of why the job of a free and responsible press is a hard thing, a hard job, hard to do well. you want the people that do it to be worthy of the responsibility they have. tomorrow morning in a law officer in dan bury, connecticut. phone calls will be made available to the phone calls made the morning of the sandy hook shootings. the victims said they did not want those tap
elections. getting democrats to care about this issue when there's a democratic president and getting republicans to care about these issues when there's a republican president and right now i don't know if anyone who is watching this at home has noticed, but all five democratic members of the committee have left the room. i think they left 20 minutes, three and a half hours into the hearing. they are obviously not as interested in this. >> i think that one of our problems here is that we have a president right now but isn't willing to work with congress. i think that is -- we just had a democrat walk in. i retract my statement. my apologies. i talked to a constituency that worked for the bush white house and who's job it was to lobby with congress and i met with somebody from the obama administration exactly twice in three years and i do think it is the president's duty to engage. i have a question on that, but i'm out of time. i do think there's a disappointed with the president not being engaged. >> they are concerned about the executive power. when the executive is a republican. >

doesn't get people elected. that's the problem with these politicians. >> to the election the "new york times" says the article on the three democrat senators, the southern democrats that are left, are they moving towards a budget resolution because the democrats are so concerned about losing the senate? >> the democrats are worried about losing the senate for a variety of reasons but it will have more to do with the health care law than the budget. but yes, those folks are worried about their seats. they don't want to see anything that causes pain in terms of their electoral chances. another government shutdown might help democrat's chances because republicans would be blamed. so there's some odd politics but yes those senators are worried about their seats. and harry reid is worried about holding on to the gavel in the senate chamber but it's not a huge risk compared to few months ago. >> thank you very much. we'll continue with david stockman. fired up about chairman bernanke. >> we wouldn't have it any other way. coming up, a merger set to close today. what are the ingredients for s
on patent reform since i was elected and took office in 2011. this is not new. we have been working on this legislation if not for several months at least several weeks where it's been up on the internet to see, for our colleagues to read. i'm tired of hearing here in congress we need more time and more time to do something. if businesses operated the way congress did, they would be out of business. finally, this is a quintessential example of us getting off our did you have and doing something in reasonable amount of time that's going to help small business owners because, as we stand here and speak, more and more are being put out of business because of trolls. i yield back. thank you. the chair: the gentleman from virginia reserves. the gentleman from michigan is recognized. mr. conyers: madam speaker, how much time remains? the chair: the gentleman from michigan has 4 1/2 minutes remaining. mr. conyers: thank you. i am pleased now to call a senior member of the committee, our friend from north carolina, mel watt, who has worked on this assiduously for a number of years, the rema
. frankly, it was that refusal that led to his defeat and re-election. the judge, the person who prosecuted michael's case, a guy named ken anderson, became a judge in that county. he pled guilty to criminal contempt for hiding exculpatory everyday in michael's case. he did ten days in jail, he was disbarred. now we're having an audit conducted by the criminal defense lawyers to see if he had done this in other instances. so michael's case really is of enormous importance, and he himself is such an extraordinary individual, that i think there is no one in america, you know, white, black, or brown, that couldn't identify with the story of leaving for work first thing in the morning and then all of a sudden by the afternoon, you know, your wife's been beaten to death in front of your 3 1/2-year-old child. and you're convicted of that murder. it's just unreal dream, as the documentary so well puts it. >> which airs tomorrow night. more i get word on michael, you brought up ken anderson. i have to read the statement from his attorney. mr. anderson has not been and will never be prosecuted for a
